Yah, I guess that's how I am. I'm thanking God for the opportunity he gave me to prove my strength, but that's about it. To be honest, I did not feel no strong relevation that people feel when they suffer and get closer to God, if anything, it made me drift.
youre young, youve got time if you need it. was that you i saw at barnes and noble today?
My bad, I didn't see your response, so I'll just send my reply here.
I don't need God. Yo, hurtful to say. I'm strong already. my whole life everyone is saying, oh God wouldn't give you something you couldn't handle. Well if it's a gift, he can take it back. He wants me strong? Well I'm strong, when am I going to reap the rewards of all my suffering? When I'm dead. That's the whole basis of Catholicism. Suffer when you live, follow the rules, control yourself. Then when you die you get paradise. Sure the meaning has changed, but I look at basics and foundations, not what people call it today. And back then, that's what all of Christianity/Catholicism was about.
im not gonna lie thats a valid point, and ive had that feeling alot before. i respect that you dont believe in or need God and i suppose all i can say to that is think of this suffering as a learning experience and appreciate what little good comes out of it.
but to all the people reblogging that “no body knows me” post……tough luck. thats how the world is, there are only a hand full of people left in the world that really give damn about who you are. and its a gross exaggerations to claim that no one in your life truly understands you, and if that is the case then maybe some changes have to be made in your life. instead of shutting yourself off from the world, have the guts to let someone get to know you. im only speaking from personal experience. and ask yourself this, do you truly know anyone in your life.
